TOCA invites tenders for BTCC hybrid introduction
TOCA has put out a tender to supply the hybrid system for the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), as it moves its introduction date forward by a year to 2021.
The contract will be awarded in the next three months.
The winning contractor will be required to produce a light, cost effective, low-voltage hybrid system with proven durability. This hybrid system will be incorporated into the current specification BTCC cars – additional to their 2-litre turbocharged engines.
Over the last 9 months, TOCA has heavily engaged with industry experts to clearly define the technical, performance, system specification, servicing and commercial requirements.
The hybrid system was originally planned for a 2022 introduction into the BTCC but TOCA will bring it forward to 2021 if key parameters are met. The BTCC is thought to be the first major touring car championship in the world to have committed to a firm pathway for the integration of hybrid power.
The full tender is available for interested parties who should contact Peter Riches,
BTCC Technical Director .
